Birthday Awards and Wishes

It was my birthday last week and it passed pretty uneventfully but today, I was reading a post by Loribeth at Loribeth's Artistic Romance and she gave me the birthday award. I am very flattered. Thank you Loribeth.
Of course, there are rules to go along with the award which are:
1. Post the image of this award.
2. Make a list of what you want on your birthday.
3. The list should be 15 numbers.
4. Give it to 10 friends of yours.

So even though my birthday just passed, I think I am still eligible to make 15 birthday wishes. Here goes:

1. To one day make snow angels with my son (it never snows in my part of the world so we would need to go somewhere it does before this can happen).

2. To be a successful blogger and make a lot of 'blogger friends'.

3. To persevere until I write a work that is accepted and published.

4. To visit all the countries and places on my wish list.

5. To live a long healthy life.

6. I wish for a change in my current work situation, for the situation to improve.

7. An impossible wish this, but I will wish it anyway, to eat all the chocolate and desserts that I like and not put on an ounce of weight :)

8. For my husband to sell his paintings.

9. For more time to write (blogs, stories, anything).

10. For health and happiness for all my family.

11. To make lots of new friends and keep in touch with all my old ones who have scattered around the globe.

12. To find a cheap flight to London, Paris or somewhere in Italy some time soon.

13. To win a prestigious writing competition.

14. To always believe in the power of love.

15. Try to fit in some scrap-booking into my busy schedule every now and then.

Well, that was not easy but it is good to be able to make a wish, every now and then. It would be great if even just 2 or 3 of these wishes came true. However, with hard work and perseverance, I think that I can make a few of them become a reality. As for some of the others, well, I cannot expect to have everything in life, but coming close to achieving most of the above fifteen, would, in my opinion, be close to having an almost perfect life.

Once again I would like to thank Loribeth for this encouraging award and I am glad that I am a source of inspiration to you. In turn I would like to nominate: Glynis at New Scribbles From Glynis Smy, Louie Jerome at Lizzie's Choice and Len at Conversations with Self for all their support, especially during these early stages of my blogging experience.

P.S. I finally figured out how to insert links in posts. Hurray!


  1. Thanks for the award and keep blogging!
    I hope hubby sells his art! Get him a site and show it off! :)

  2. Hi Loree..thanks so much for this nomination! Wow, my birthday is 3 months away but I can make birthday wishes! That's awesome! Thanks also for visiting my site. I wish for you the best and for all your wishes to come true!
